|I did a sc stitch around a strip of towel|
The pattern? Here is how I did it:
Using worst weigh yarn, strips of a towel (or a sheet) and a G hook,
9 sc around a 1/2 in - 1 in wide strip of towel.
Row 1 : Now making a circle, making the stitch around the towel strips, and working in continuous rounds, 2 sc in the first sc you made ( forming the circle) and in the next 8 sc,
Row 2: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc,* repeat 8 time more
Row 3: *2 sc in the next sc, sc in the next 2 sc* repeat 8 times more
So keep increasing 9 sc until you reach the desired size of your base. Then you just do sc evenly around until you reach the desired height.
Some other things to keep in mind.When I reached an end of a towel strip, I overlapped another piece about an inch, or you can join the strips. I found I would rather just over lap the the strip. As I mentioned earlier, varying the width of the strips affected the shape of the bowl, this is something creative you can do with the bowl.For my bowl and a row of reverse sc and added a decorative button. Of course you can personalize the bowl anyway you want.
|Add 1 inch slits to the ends of a strip|
|Insert the strip you want to add through the slit on the main strip.|
|Take the other end of the strip you want to add though the slit on the other end.|
|Gently pull through.|
Here is a video on how to make my latest decorative bowl, but it is slightly different than the written pattern. I incorporate the line stitch (sc, ch 1; sc in the ch 1 spaces) for the sides of the bowl.
This sounds like a really interesting idea. Before I read the instructions, I thought you did a filet-like stitch and wove the towel material through it. I'm going to try it your way first. lolReplyDelete
I bet you could make runner rugs using sturdy fabric, or even an interesting fleece blanket using the same concept. Thanks for posting!ReplyDelete
